of the debt ceiling. >> the debt ceiling, that even -- that makes me nervous. i'm twitching when i heard the words debt ceiling. stephen, do we think there's any more chance they're moving to at least some kinds of consensus of how we'll run the nation's books before we get to the debt ceiling? >> i'm not sure we are, actually. i think this budget was an ideological document -- >> aren't they all? wait, isn't that what it is, the president's mission statement, right? >> of course it is. no doubt about it. this is the president's statement. i worked for ronald reagan when we put our budgets. it's a statement of principle. the point i'm making is there's not a lot in here republicans are going to go say, oh, wonderful idea. we haven't talked about the new taxes which republicans will reject out of hand. the most interesting thing that happened this week when the president proposed what i think is a fairly modest change to social security, oh, my gosh, these organizations on the left, i mean, had cardiac arrest. and that makes me somewhat nervous about whether we're ever going to get seriou

to have runs. fourth him of the debt ceiling was going to derail our economy for certain, even if we manage to solve the fiscal cliff and the sequester lurked ominously. no matter what deal the politicians made. these would have course throw us off track and cause much higher unemployment. finally, four months ago, fourth quarter earnings, the reports were right around the corner and they were supposed to be, yes, nothing to write home about, or maybe worse, particularly the worldwide slowdown that europe seemed to be mandating, we could have huge downside surprises and the last time we had some pre-announcements -- wait a second. what actually happened? how about we had the best first quarter in 15 years. how is that possible? i think it's because the market has changed its animals. i'm not kidding. investors stopped being scared of washington or europe or earnings shortfalls and they decided to embrace the future, not spurn it. they became like ulysses and his crew, strapped to the mast, oblivious to the sell, sell, sell sirens of the saturnine set. where is sappho when you need h

're going to get a public policy flare-up like we had in '10 or '11 during the debt ceiling debate or what happened during the whole election process which so influenced business confidence a year ago. so those two factors are better than they were each of the last three years. the growth piece is similar. on balance we think that adds up to something less than those prior three-year corrections. but close to at least last year's. >> there are some interesting calls in that analysis. barry, thank you very much for your time. barry knapp there at barclays. >>> switching gears a bit from the broader markets to technology, specifically apple and its slide back below $400 today. does the news out of verizon offset all the bad news we got from supplier cirrus yesterday. dan niles, is the cio of alpha one capital, he's been negative on apple shares for six to nine months or so. joins us on the news line today. dan, welcome back. >> thanks, carl. nice to be on. >> does any of the activations of the iphone out of verizon negate or offset what spooked us from cirrus yesterday? >> not at all. verizo
